The embattled Royal Launceston Show will go ahead this year, despite the organisers' ongoing financial troubles.
The event is set to be held on October 10 at the Inveresk Showgrounds.
Like it was in 2018, the show will be a one-day event this year.
IN OTHER NEWS:
"We're hoping for a long-term future [for the show]," Launceston Show Society president Jock Gibson said on Monday.
"Financially, we're not out of the woodwork; financially, we're still struggling and looking at various ways to make ourselves [financially viable] again.
"We look at various options [and] we're hopeful that we can continue long-term - but we've still got some hurdles to jump over."
In December 2017, The Examiner reported that the Launceston Show Society was believed to owe the City of Launceston more than $100,000.

Mr Gibson wasn't prepared to comment on the money owed to the council.
"That's probably still between us and the council," he said.
The attractions for this year's event are still being finalised.
Mr Gibson said the future of the show was also tied to the future of the Tasmanian show circuit on the whole.
"[The Royal Launceston Show has] been going now for an awful long time," he said.
"Once you ... lose a major show out of the [Tasmanian show] circuit, then it makes it hard for all the other shows that are trying to operate, as well.
"So it's a matter of trying to keep the whole Tasmanian circuit going."
